Anything Goes (DT) - Stitching (Real or Faux)

Hello friends... welcome to another challenge at the Anything Goes challenge blog.  Wow... your entries for our last challenge were absolutely stunning... thanks so much for joining us.  We really hope this next challenge will inspire you to take part again. 

I've gone for Faux stitching, as I don't have space to display my sewing machine.  Don't look too closely now as it may not be quite as straight as I would have liked it to be.  But then, these are handmade cards after all !

I haven't used a Penny Black stamp for absolute ages.  This one is called T.L.C (Tender Loving Care).  Aren't those 2 hedgehogs just too cute for words!

I followed through on the stitching for the inside too, as you can see from the peek of the inside of my card and then to make those hearts "pop"...

... I added some Royal Coat dimensional glaze to them and to the watering can and pots as well.  They needed a little bit of a lift I think.

Once again, please visit the Craft Den for all your crafting needs... Lynn has some stunning products for you to view and purchase.



Thanks for popping by. Happy crafting, hugs Sharon x
